I have a weldment with welds that I want to import as a part copy and then machine away some of the weld. When I import the part copy none of the welds come across. I have tried saving in neutral file format and none of the welds get translated there either. I have asked a question of GTAC and he brought in my files and hit the update link on the part copy and the welds showed up. He gave me a copy of one of his files and I was able to see the welds in the part copy, but when I updated the link they disappeared. Is there some switch that I need to set in order to get the welds to be translated?
You can cut away part of the weld directly from within the assembly. Once you have created the weld use assembly Features to modify it. See Video:-
I realize that but assembly features are not what I am trying to do. The guy at GTAC doesn't seem to have a problem doing what I am trying to do, so I am wondering where the disconnect is.
Ken, the GTAC guy doesn't seem to have a problem either. I tried it on another machine that we have and got the same result. Something seems to be preventing the welds from being exported and then imported.
I am running ST7 MP1. I am going to try to install MP2 and see if that cleans this problem up.
Just be aware of the "Double File Extension" regression in MP2,....the system includes the parent files extension when saving a draft file, and when exporting to another format.
